Farms drawing diners who eat near crops that produced food


CAMBRIDGE, Vt. (AP) — Dining at farms is becoming a regular summer and fall event that runs the gamut from multicourse dinners to weekly burger nights.

From California to Vermont, farmers are drawing customers to feast on foods raised in nearby fields.

At Valley Dream Farm in Cambridge, Vermont, tourists return year after year for the weekly $65 dinners at the organic produce farm. The event also includes a hay wagon farm tour.

Don Kruger is president of Kruger’s Farm Market in Portland, Oregon. He says the farm-to-plate dinners give farmers a chance to make a living. He says he couldn’t survive on farming alone.
